by Trinity Rail starting in late 2003, the unique 64' Reefer Box Car was designed
for increased capacity, shipping protection, and loading/unloading efficiency.
Large enough to fit the equivalent of four 53' truck trailer contents, these excess
height, plate 'F' cars have given new life to the once flourishing refrigerated
movement of produce and other perishable goods.
With 1,500 of these massive cars in service, the 64' Reefers
have literally taken tens of thousands of truck trailers off the highways, paving
the way for lower-emissions and increased capacity handling. Furthermore, Railex
Corporation has begun shipping produce in solid unit trains from their locations
in Washington, California, and New York.
